New Kiwis Employer Survey results for 2021

The annual New Kiwis Employer Survey is designed to elicit ‘real life’ feedback reflecting their experiences when recruiting and employing migrants both on and offshore.

The survey was issued just over a year after New Zealand went into its first COVID Level 4 lockdown. Since that time there have been significant impacts to international travel and immigration affecting migrant workers already in the country, those wanting to migrate to New Zealand and to employers who would usually bolster their workforce with overseas workers.


The survey is divided into 5 main sections:
• Background
• Recruitment methods
• Barriers faced when employing migrants
• Barriers faced by migrants
• Retention of migrants
